A - Afrilounge - Lux Dementia by Connaisseur Recordings published on 2014/01/17 16:16:14 +0000 Probably one of our biggest hits ever, produced by our old homies @afrilounge and released in 2007. A classic, still played and praised. Since years we would love to do remixes of it, but due to a hard drive crash, unfortunately the original session got lost. We are still working on it, so maybe one day... Original press-text: Afrilounge – after the tremendous success of their first release on Connaisseur, Eduard Hartter, Richard Rotfuss (aka Richard Liapin) and Markus Liefke (aka Liefko) now team up for a second strike! It has been rather a while since the “Pin&FKO EP”, but the guys haven’t been lazy since then. Their unique DJ-sets all around Europe and their releases on Kassette Records, and especially the “Wasser & Sonne EP” on 8bit, have kept them in quality ravers’ minds. The Lux Dementia release offers two deep cuts for all aficionados of deep Techno and House. The main track “Lux Dementia” first appeared on our Sonar Promo CD and got licensed straight away by Steve Bug for his upcoming Fabric Mix CD. Afrilounge have developed their style into a more timeless and subtle direction, always keeping their eyes on the dance floor. Not exactly peak time, their music is more like a good friend you can trust when you are dancing at 9am and things are getting charmingly strange around you. “Lux Dementia” hits the floor with a warm atmosphere and a heavy kick that keeps you moving. A slow build-up with a heavy motorcity flavor leads to a mindblending break with an addictive grand piano hook. It’s the kind of breakdown that will suck all remaining serotonin out of your brain. “Gêne” is the subtler cut on this release. With its fluxionary groove and its meandering synth lines, it creates a feeling of deep melancholic happiness.
